published 11 years ago by The BMA

The cartoon "Clean Pastures" (1937) is a Merrie Melodies spoof of the film "The Green Pastures" starring some caricatures of famous African-American stars of the time including Stepin Fetchit, Fats Waller, Cab Calloway, Jimmie Lunceford, and Louis Armstrong (plus a cameo by Al Jolson) in their efforts to save the all black "Pair-O-Dice" from bankruptcy with their musical abilities.
